US Senator Henry Wilson was chosen to run with President Grant after a scandal involved the prior VP. He was born Jermiah Jones Colbath but had his name changed to Henry Wilson. I don't know why. He then moved and became engaged in shoe manufacturing. He later owned and edited a newspaper in Boston.
Be careful of the dropoff while looking for this geocache. Please replace it properly. Be safe. Have fun!
** A note from IowaChupacabra: Hello! I am attempting to maintain Blue Grass Tom’s geocaches. Have fun as you travel and explore up and down these Iowa back country roads to find the geocaches in this series. As you do so, if you happen upon a wet log, torn bag, or cracked/damaged/missing container, and graciously make the choice to add/replace paper/bag or change out/replace a container, I would certainly appreciate it and Thank You for the help. I attempt to make a run through the area every few months to fix the problems noted in the logs, but there’s always something! Thank You!
